Scotland manager Craig Levein says the return of Steven Fletcher to the international fold relies solely on the in-form striker getting in touch.
Former Hibs player Fletcher has been in the goals for Wolverhampton Wanderers of late, scoring eight in 15 appearances for the club this season.
The 24-year-old hasn’t been considered for his country since February 2011, when he pulled out of a squad to face Northern Ireland by texting a member of the Scottish FA’s backroom staff, administrator Frank Reilly.
Despite the resulting fall out, Levein is open to considering the eight-times capped player again but says Fletcher must approach him personally to indicate he wishes to play for his country again.
“As soon as he indicates to me he wants to play for Scotland then I'll consider him,” Levein told the BBC. “It's as simple as that.”
“The rules are there for everybody. It might be that he doesn't want to play for me. I don't know, because I haven't had a conversation with him.
“All the correspondence I've had with him is that he doesn't want to play for Scotland.
“So until he tells me otherwise that's all I'm assuming, and until he indicates he wants to play for Scotland then things will stay as they are.”
It is understood Fletcher is also willing to play for Scotland again but is hopeful Levein will be in touch with him to discuss the situation.
The national team are next in action on February 29, when Levein will take a team to Slovenia for an international friendly.
